About

Legendary Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata revisits Japan’s most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her – but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime. A powerful and sweeping epic that redefines the limits of animated storytelling, THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA marks a triumphant highpoint within an extraordinary career in filmmaking for Takahata (GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES, POM POKO).
